I have so many unanswered questions and I don’t know if I just glazed over infiinta sections there was definitely some spacing out at times or if all the storylines were just supposed to stop halfway.

But, like I ask constantly, especially when it comes to Deleuze and Guattari – was it necessary?? His vocal inflections and range of character voices make the sentences sing and their meanings so much clearer. There are too many scenes to remember across this ten-book-sized book but coming straight from reading I can assert that Gately is rendered with explosive pain and cruelty during a pivotal fight scene, the incendiary flashbacks, and the drudgery-of-recovery scenes.

The narrative structure is intentionally convoluted. While IJ may indeed be most accurately described as postmodern, I have a suspicion after reading excerpts “Good People”, “Wiggle Room” from the forthcoming posthumous Fosher Pale Kingas well as coming across some of his quotes about the staleness and restrictions of the form or formlessness after odd infinta of irony and detachment, that DFW will be viewed if he isn’t already as a seminal literary figure who adumbrated–and more importantly ignited–a post-postmodern focus that eschews detachment in favor of empathy, cynical irony in favor of the kind that circles back toward infinjta sincerity.


Finishing IJ Infinite Jest is like completing a tenure of community service. People who knew each other. The most effective type is something called intermittent reinforcement. I mean what is it really infinitw to connect to really be there with a person who is maybe just a little bit wrong, a little bit off. If you play a song well the audience should get lost in the music and it should take waloace a second or two to come out of that to applaud for you at the end of a song.

Does the loss of innocence render us irreparably lost? There is even a scholarly article comparing the brothers Incadenza to the Brothers Karamazov!!

It really is far loo long. Correction this is a book connor really likes.

Sometimes words get mangled deliberately to reflect the state of mind of a character, and the language is full of repeated leitmotif phrases for example people don’t infinifa but they have their personal maps eliminated. It seemed admirable and at the same time pathetic. And I guess Wallace succeeded sort of I kept reading the book. A badge of honor. The lexicon is stellar and sublime, brimming with wordplay and revelling in the sheer delight of language. It is often unclear who exactly the narrator is.

But, I can understand why it is hated, and why it is loved. He didn’t cull back to the essentials, instead leaving so much sprawl that the book’s poignancy gets undermined. Which is to say that my major issue with Infinite Jest is that it’s a jnfinita that didn’t know what it wanted to be when it grew up.

Another repeated theme is fosteg finding strange ways to die. All books and narratives end, but the moments from this one just seem to stick with you now I’m just weeping uncontrollably; i’m so happy no one’s here to see this. With a real virtuosity, the third person telling of a story will shift in tone from chapter to fostsr to suggest a character already introduced, or more often being introduced or described.


It’s also fitting that you can’t have a reasonable discussion about it, because the book itself makes any such discussion impossible. I can feel the both sides. All of this is familiar enough.

After a while, I just picked Infinite Jest from my bookshelf, which I didn’t remember about and wasn’t even considering at all since it had been there for a year, abandoned, postponed, like a nice piece of furniture I had bought one would have thought only to make my bookshelf look nice — the large blue brick does make it look colorful indeed.

It shows achingly thorough knowledge of the workings of obsession.

Would I ever read it again? I learned that even after hundreds of pages a book can surprise you, I learned that even in the darkest moment of reading a book there can be moments of beauty and light. Each character struggles with a deep-seated psychological and emotional emptiness that comes from isolation, lack of purpose, and an inability to believe absolutely in boma.
